  • Accessible, with great views, restaurant and hiking/strolling areas with the Alps, Lake Zurich, and rolling hills. Lots of green (forests, meadows, pastures). Please note that the train does not reach the top of the mountain; a really short hike is required.
  • Great view over the valley. An medium walk up or train ride and short easy walk worth the efforts. Refreshments are available on the top to enjoy the view with a drink and /or snacks. Quite the tourist attraction slightly spoiling the tranquility of the nature around you.
